*Other than the mysterious murder itself, of course.
A very popular – and very durable – sub-genre of mystery fiction is “the cozy.”
(If you don’t know what a cozy is, there’s a great operational definition here.)
Computer-owning fans of cozies will be glad to learn about The Cozy Mystery List, devoted exclusively to this type of book. The site’s features include:
- annotated lists of books organized by author and by theme.
- notices of newly-published cozies.
- a list of award-winning cozies.
- lists of movies and TV shows based on cozy mystery novels.
As it happens, the Ponce Branch’s fiction collection includes a remarkable number of cozies, new and old, that you can borrow, and you can borrow (by placing Holds on them) virtually any cozy title from the even larger collection at the Central Library.
